A Good Thing

Today friends and neighbors in our neighborhood came together to show support and friendship to a family in our ward. They are getting deported back to England and though they did everything legally and were above board always in their intentions, because of an error their lawyer made are banned from our country for the next ten years. This family is warm, compassionate, funny and down to earth. It would truly be a loss for us if they had to go. The crews of channel 4 and 5 news were there today interviewing the family and friends and mentioned how impressed they were at how many showed up. As we were leaving the newscaster was calling the personal number of a famous radio personality to see if he would pick up the story as well on his show. I am so grateful to belong to such a wonderful neighborhood where everyone supports one another. I am thankful to live in a free country where if you stand together and speak out you can make a difference. I pray that it does for this wonderful family. I don't know how to do it right, but if you click the long rectangular box above this post it will link you to the news video.
